This Week's Features

Dig in! -- Build Your Own BioSand Filter at the Humanitarian Engineering Workshop

Engineer and inventor Dr. David Manz will run a two-day workshop to demonstrate to students how to build a BioSand Filter, the device he developed to improve drinking-water filtration processes. The first day -- Thursday from 8-11 am in Merryfield Hall, students will mix and pour concrete into a steel mold. On Friday, from 1-4 pm, workshop teams will remove the filter from the mold and prepare it for use. (RSVP for the workshop to judy.finn@oregonstate.edu). As well, on Thursday, at 4 pm, join Dr. Manz for a reception and a lecture in Rogers 226. “The Future of the BioSand Filter” is the third and final lecture in the “Voices from the Field” seminar series from OSU’s Humanitarian Engineering Program.
